Think They Caught a View of Me…?

Filed under: General — admin @ 12:10 AM  

Waiting around one of my spots for over an hour, and was almost ready to go, when this short little inspection train showed up. Had no idea it was even in the area. I got a horn toot from the engineer!

I would have preferred to be higher up, to get the train centered on the bridge, and out of the tree shadows. But I’ll take what I can get. I figure this might be the only time I catch this kind of train at this particular location!

The last car, seen here, is BNSF 87, a Track Measurement car named Skagit River.

Water You Gonna Do…?

Here’s a Southern Pacific Water Car visiting the local UP yard. I want to say it’s a firefighting car – but I see no water guns. It might just be a mister, Mister. Somebody can chime in if they know what it does.
